Route Markers

The order of departure from Meno A Kwena Safari Camp are as follows:

  1. Bates & Anthony (5:39 am)
  2. Pam & Winnie (6:11 am)
  3. Chuck & Wynona (6:17 am)
  4. Joey & Meghan (6:23 am)
  5. Caroline & Jennifer (6:28 am)
  6. Mona & Beth (6:37 am)
  7. Max & Katie (6:49 am)

Teams must drive themselves to Boro Village and search for Makoro Poling Station to find their next clue.

At Makoro Poling Station, Max & Katie would receive their clue for their Speed Bump.

Max & Katie have to wear traditional beaded skirts and then perform a ceremonial seduction dance, before they are allowed to continue.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to them after receiving their clue at Boro Village.

Teams would have to waterski one mile on the Okavango Delta to win the Fast Forward. Bates & Anthony won the Fast Forward.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to transport two goats down river to a delivery point by using a makoro. The team member performing the Roadblock has to control the makoro via punting, while the other team member looks after the goats. Once the goats have been delivered and the team returns to the start point, they will receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by water taxi, then by safari taxi to the Royal Tree Lodge Game Preserve to find their next clue.

Choice A: Brains
Teams would have to go on a horseback safari and spot ten animal wooden cutouts: zebra, African buffalo, kudu, giraffe, meerkat, boomslang snake, leopard, warthog, ostrich, and hippopotamus with a heron. They'll then travel to a nearby campsite and arrange a set of tiles featuring the silhouettes of the animals from the order they appeared. The tiles for animals they did not see and there was no tile representing the hippopotamus, but there was one for the heron. Once they have the right order, they'll receive their next clue. If they are incorrect, they'll have to start again before being allowed another try at arranging the tiles.

Only Chuck & Wynona chose this task.

Choice B: Brawn
Teams would have to have to fill a traditional sand sledge with firewood and then, using a carrot dangling from a stick, coax a team of donkeys to pull the sledge to a campsite over a half a mile away. Once the wood is unloaded from the sledge, teams will receive their next clue.

Caroline & Jennifer, Joey & Meghan, Max & Katie, Mona & Beth, and Pam & Winnie chose this task.

Teams must search the grounds of the Royal Tree Lodge Game Preserve to check in.

For coming in first place, Bates & Anthony each won $7500.
